The beauty of building a custom home is that you are able to choose every design feature of your new home. And when it comes to the interior, it’s all about the details including your plumbing fixtures. You will have a plethora of choices to choose from but where do you start? Read below to learn how to select the plumbing fixtures for your new home in huntsville al.

It is important to select fixtures that match your lifestyle and also blend well with the accessories and decorating style of your home. You definitely don’t want to choose a lavish style fixture for a country style or comfortable looking home. But on the flip side you don’t want a traditional or retro looking fixture in a more modern or luxurious home. In addition, you want to ensure your plumbing features are accessible to people of all heights and those with mobility issues. Sleek, smooth and straight lines are usually used for contemporary homes whereas detailed and ornate fixtures are usually seen in more traditional homes. Hands free faucets are ideal for those with kids or are in heavy traffic areas like the kitchen. They’re much easier to use and can definitely reduce germs and diseases. Smart faucets are also great for improving water efficiency and controlling water temperature. Though polished chrome has been around for ages there are definitely more styles to choose from these days. There is antique brass, black, brushed nickel, copper, gold plated, iron, polished brass, oil-rubbed metals, pearl nickel, stainless steel finishes.

  • Working with Rachel Brown Homes has been a smooth experience from Day 1. My clients were wanting a specific look for their home, had particular requirements for the home itself that they could not stray away from, and in a location with very few opportunities. One builder could not meet my clients' specific requirements within the price range they allotted for themselves.

  • Recently I began working with clients who are relocating to the area. After viewing several homes, nothing was clicking with them, even new construction by other builders. I suggested that we speak with Rachel Brown Homes about a custom built home. Right away, I saw the concern about the idea of "custom built". I could tell that they were thinking "expensive, long build times, and overwhelming choices.
